Greetings to the Gentles of Known World,
Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for November detailing what
is new in the Florilegium this month.

If you are a newsletter editor and would like to get a copy of this
monthly article for your print newsletter several weeks before I post
it to the mail lists, please contact me. If you publish a newsletter
on the web, I also have a version of this article which includes the
links for each file. If you would like to get on my list for the web
version of this article, please email me.

in a collection of files I call Stefan's Florilegium.
The Florilegium is on the web at: http://www.florilegium.org
I am always interested in new articles. If you have written an article
that would be of interest to others in the SCA, please send it to me
for possible inclusion in the Florilegium. A&S documentation and class
handouts will also often work out well. I am especially interested in
